Bomber “box” formations allowed guns in each aircraft to protect vulnerable blind spots on the other airplanes in the group. The formation was vital for defense. Assembly Ships were older aircraft, usually having completed their schedule of active sorties, which were painted in bright colors and patterns to be highly visible. As bombers launched from their many fields they would line up behind these Assembly Ships to create their formations. (Consolidated-B-24 Liberator)

DFW T28 Floh 08: The prototype Floh made a very promising first flight in 1915., During the test flight a speed of 180 Km/h was recorded, this was a feat at the time. The test flight exposed difficult landing characteristics in the design. This could be attributable to a narrow width of the landing gear causing instability and the high center of gravity. These flaws were compounded by the position of the pilot which reduced landing visibility.
